Both Sides Now

The sky at sunset
is a child’s science project,
tugged-thin cottonballs
& pink cotton candy cyclone
tacked to robin’s egg blue
construction paper,
pinned-on chunks of tree moss
for mountains, and high above,
a cut-out glossy photograph
of the waning gibbous moon.
Does a child notice this,
looking up? Imagine
if we all looked at clouds
like second-grade scientists.

Good morning!
